This plate is surrounded by churches and lovely old buildings. It contains the most significant Marian pilgrimage site, tiny church in Germany. Many attractions for believers and tourists but frequented most by Germans. Cheap parking right under the platz.

Whether you are religious or not, this is a great stop. The collection of churches and chapels are distinctive and of course the Bavarian ruler heart chapel is a must. But buy a guide book and take a little tour and you will be fascinated with the details of this place.

City of pilgrimage, also called "the German Lourdes". A lot of churches and chapels on one square, different architectural styles from different eras. Most prominent building is the The Chapel of Grace in Altötting (where the hearts of many Bavarian kings are kept). Other builings are: the two-towered Gothic Stiftspfarrkirche, St. Magdalene Church, Marianische Männerkongregation, Stiftspropstei, Alten Chorherrenstock, Pilgrimage Museum,... More
